What other Linux distros will do frugal installation?
The only linux I have ever used is Puppy. I formerly had a very old machine and Puppy was perfect fit for it. That computer died and I have a new bigger and faster computer. Puppy works great -- I use Puppy 528.005 as my operating system. I haven't used Windows since Win 98 died.
I would like to branch out and try another linux system.

The puppy's frugal install system is very original and I have not experience of other distros that use this system. I have instead experience of installing other distros ubuntu like (mint and other derivatives of ubuntu) which can be intalled with "persistence" mode by unetbootin or grub2. Perhaps other distros not ubuntu like support this "persistence" system but not by unetbootin. Something about this question wrote rcrsn51 in an Howto:
